What Can I add to this Zesty Chicken and Potato Sheet Pan Dinner

This Zesty Roasted Chicken and Potato Sheet Pan Dinner is already delicious, but there are plenty of ways to add variety and cater to different tastes. Here are some ideas for ingredients you can incorporate:


  • Roasted Veggies: Classic options like chopped onions, bell peppers, or broccoli florets can roast alongside the potatoes for added color, flavor, and nutrients.
  • Heartier Vegetables: For a more substantial meal, consider including chunks of sweet potato, butternut squash, or Brussels sprouts.
  • Greens: If you prefer some freshness, toss in asparagus spears or cherry tomatoes towards the end of roasting for a pop of color and a slightly crisp texture.


  • Spicy Kick: Add a touch of heat with red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, or a sprinkle of your favorite hot sauce.
  • Herb Lovers: Fresh or dried herbs like rosemary, thyme, or oregano can complement the zesty flavors nicely.
  • Citrus Twist: A squeeze of fresh lemon or orange juice can brighten up the dish.
  • Smoky Touch: For a deeper flavor profile, consider sprinkling smoked paprika or adding a few slices of smoked sausage.

Other Additions:

  • Olives: For a salty and briny element, add a handful of Kalamata or black olives towards the end of roasting.
  • Cheese: Sprinkle some Parmesan or shredded cheddar cheese over the chicken and potatoes halfway through cooking for a cheesy topping.
  • Nuts: Chopped pecans, almonds, or walnuts can add a nice textural contrast and a touch of richness.


  • Simple Salad: A light and refreshing green salad with a vinaigrette dressing is a perfect accompaniment to this flavorful dish.
  • Roasted Vegetables: If you don’t want to add extra veggies to the sheet pan, consider roasting a separate pan of vegetables like asparagus or green beans.
  • Grains: For a more complete meal, serve with a side of brown rice, quinoa, or couscous.

Storage Tips

  • Let it Cool Completely: Before storing, make sure the chicken and potatoes cool completely to room temperature. This helps prevent bacteria growth.
  • Airtight Container is Key: Transfer leftovers to an airtight container. This will prevent them from drying out or absorbing any unwanted fridge odors.
  • Separate or Together: It’s perfectly fine to store the chicken and potatoes together in the same container. However, if the sauce is very loose, you might consider storing the chicken and potatoes separately to prevent the chicken from becoming soggy.
  • Fridge Life: Your leftover sheet pan dinner will stay safe in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

Here are some additional tips for reheating:

  • Reheat Gently: Reheat leftovers in the oven or microwave until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  • Avoid Overheating: Overheating can dry out the chicken and potatoes. Reheat gently and add a splash of broth or water if needed to prevent dryness. Or add a little more of the sauce mixture if desired.
  • Crispy Cravings: If you want to revive the crispiness of the potatoes, consider placing them on a baking sheet for a few minutes in a hot oven before serving. Or don’t add the sauce immediately and heat for a minute or two in the air fryer first.
